What's The Best 9mm Bullet Weight
Brand? ~ For general everyday carry??? For most defensive type situations.
That would best/most effective all purpose defensive ammo.
The only firearms that I own in "9" are two older Walther P38s that I never shoot or even ever degrease. :rolleyes: I think I have some old "ball ammo" for them stashed.
I am a 9mm dummy...I admit it. :wink:
Somebody asked me that ammo question yesterday & I realized that I had absolutely no real idea.
I took a "stab in the dark unqualified answer at HOT Federal" but, I'll put the question to you guys that actually carry a 9 on a daily basis.
What impresses you with regard to general best performance, feed reliability, etc?
In other words what do you carry in yours?
I'm assuming that if you carry it...then you are carrying what you feel is the best and most effective round.
What is it?
Otis ~ That's Interesting.
I know that lots of LEOs are carrying 9mm so that's good to know.
"The Federal brand 115g (+p+) JHP has the highest one hit stop percentage based on law enforcement shootings."
Concerning Gold Dot:
In .380 .38sp .357mag & .45acp I usually just stick with Gold Dot.
Lot of local LEOs carry GD & it feeds very well in my various .45s so...I figure I have a possible litigation edge carrying what many local Police carry. My SIG 220s really like GD & it's super accurate in those pistols.
I also usually carry an extra mag full of Glaser Safety Slugs. Just an odd quirk of mine.
Thanks Folks for the input.
Just wondering for my own curiousity ~
Does anybody on the forum who packs a 9mm firearm cart around standard military 9mm ball ammo in their Self~Protection firearm?
Again...just a "passing thought" curious question & no particular reason why I'm asking the question.
